Come & enjoy classic cricketat Kirakira oval

It was a classic run chase in the afternoon as the sun dipped like a well struck six over the Joyce Bay horizon.

The Kirakira Oval was afire as the Kauka Ogo T20 cricket competition rolled into its third roundbig hits, big misses and bigger memories.

In a classic escape, the big hitting burly Boremana batsman Mahuru Roy waited for the spill as the opposing Maretama wicketkeeper Loi Gima and his skipper Tony Api chased after the lofted boundary shot by fellow Borenama batsman Solomon Onno.

In a usual boundary clash, keeper Gima and skipper Api ended up in a heap before sideline spectators as the umpire gave Onno the boundary as the ball rolled off the edge.

If it was classic, then do not miss the classical grace of village cricket every Saturdays at the Kirakira Oval in Port Moresby’s southside district. Come along tomorrow to enjoy the fun of classic catches, big sixes, and of course the usual thrills and spills that bring a lot of fun to the KKO cricket competition.

A noteworthy mention goes to Ogoniva’s fast bowler Vincent ‘Jamaica’ Larry who became the first man to take 5 wickets in a match.

Larry, (5-30 in 4 overs), almost bowled out top side Mahana but the tail wagged for Mahana who steadied to go on and post 8-117 passing Ogoniva’s 116 all out.

Boremana’s Peni Loa cracked a half century (59 runs off 29 balls) to help his club stay in contention for the minor premiership.

Earlier, Manuaga’s Baeau Gabutu made 53 off 37 balls in their win over Butuka.
